Default Other Packages reccomended in new installer.

Currently, the only foreseeable way to check if the user has a particular peice of software installed is to run a command from the software, eg "mysql --help", and then if that returns false, mark that it isn't installed, and add it to the downloads package... that or type -P "command", that way the path will get returned.

Anyways, there are some packages which i would reccomend for security and other purposes would be;

* IPTables - Pretty easy to parse and add to the web frontend, plus a good deterrent for people who are trying to mess with your server.
* Snort/Tripwire - For making absolutely clear how many users are doing what they shouldn't be.

Thats all i can think of atm.
